Lutwyche man’s excited screams over Gold Lotto win cause neighbours to worry!
A Lutwyche man has admitted he screamed so loudly when he discovered he won division one in the weekend’s Saturday Gold Lotto draw that his neighbours came over worried something was wrong.
The Queensland man held one of the 27 division one winning entries across Australia in Saturday Gold Lotto’s $20 Million Superdraw, draw 4061 on 20 June 2020. Each entry won a division one prize of $740,740.75.
This morning we reached out to the winner, who only moments before had discovered he won division one.
“I am over the moon!” he laughed.
“I was actually talking to a mate about the draw and he was telling me the winning numbers, and I thought ‘wait, I think I have a few of those numbers’.
“So I called my son who had my ticket and asked him to check. He said to me ‘no way, I think you’ve won division one!’.
“I didn’t believe him, so I checked all of the numbers again and sure enough, he was right.
“I thought, ‘you beauty!’.
“I was screaming so much that the neighbours came over because they thought something was wrong!
“I wasn’t even going to buy an entry into the draw, but then I thought I might as well.
“I am glad I put the bast**d on! It’s bloody brilliant!”
When asked how he planned to enjoy his windfall, the stoked bloke said he couldn’t wait to buy his very first home.
“I am so sick of renting, so I think I am going to buy myself a little home,” he said.
“I am going to put some drinks on for all my mates and do some celebrating too.”
The division one winning entry was purchased at Lutwyche Nextra, Shop T3.06 Lutwyche City Shopping Centre, 543 Lutwyche Road, Lutwyche.
Lutwyche Nextra team leader Amanda Dahms said the outlet couldn’t be happier for their local winner.
“It’s about time we sold a division one winning entry,” she said.
“We are thrilled for our local customer!
“We wish him all the very best. He is such a deserving winner and our customers and staff couldn’t be happier for him.
